Very Professional

I had a great time on the Tillis. All the crew was very professional and positive during the whole trip. The diving was excellent and the guides were very knowledgeable. The boat was very comfortable and had ample areas for lounging between dives in both the shade and the sun. The food was excellent! I'd book a trip on the Tillis again!

I had a great week!

This was my first liveaboard and I loved it. The dives were great, and also the crew was very helpful with... everything. Quality of the food was very good, and there was plenty at every moment of the day. If it wasn't time for a meal, there were snacks. The divesites were adjusted to the level of the divers on board, and whe were every time given the choice to go diving on our own, or following a guide. The owner, Ali, was joining the Safari, is a very warm person, who makes everyone feel welcome. I will definitely come back and do another trip with the Tillis, or one of the other ships. Highly recommend!

Tillis simply rocks: amazing Deep South trip in a wonderful Liveaboard!

The dive sites were absolutely amazing, and thanks to the Liveaboard crew (from captain to diving guides, instructors, divemasters, chef, and all rest of the crew) we were able to make the most of it, through impeccable briefings, very well planned dives, four dives per day, excellent docking, good food (accommodating different needs and restrictions), very comfortable cabins, excellent common spaces for relaxing or sunbathing. We always felt safe, with full control by the crew on diving conditions (when needed we used zodiacs for initiating drift dives). It is hard to find negative things, besides the fact that it was too short...!!! One week is not enough, so we will definitely go back!

Amazing time! Awesome crew! The dolphins!! ❤️

I had a wonderful experience on The Tillis, the owner Ali and I have become great friends; he took me out to see the city of Hurghada and have a night on the town before we embarked, and invited me to his home for dinner with his family when we arrived back in port. He also has an extensive dive shop, where I purchased a ton of new and amazing equipment that I have since used on my trip to Egypt, as well as at home in Hawaii, and while on another dive trip in Mexico. His crew were amazing and made me feel like one of the family during my stay. I was given the largest cabin at no extra charge, and diving nitrox at no extra charge for every dive was also a much appreciated bonus! I earned both my wreck diving and deep diver speaciality certifications during my 8 day stay. The instructors were both very knowledgeable and fun to dive and hangout with. I highly recommend The Tillis, and it’s crew to anyone interested in diving the Red Sea, as it was an absolutely unforgettable experience! Also, THE FOOD!! Wow!! Incredible!! I was trying to lose weight during my trip, but I think I did the opposite as it was far too good to resist!! I already have plans to visit them again in September!!

It was a great week onboard the Tillis Boat!!

Major highlights - Hamerhead/Thresher shark and Brothers dive site. Although the weather was not what I was expecting, the crew did all they could to make the experience second to none. We had to change the itinerary and only had the chance to experience one of the southern dive sites which was absolutely fantastic! During the week, it was my birthday and the crew took extra special care to give me a great celebration - streamers/balloons, special dinner, and a wonderful birthday cake! I would definitely go on the Tillis again....but only to the very very south of the Red Sea!!
